The State of Arizona has sent nearly 2,000 migrants from the border state to the nation’s capital in the four months it has been in operation.
Arizona is one of three states sending migrants, specifically asylum-seekers, to other locations. The governors of Texas and Florida have come under increased scrutiny over their destinations for migrants. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott most recently sent two busloads of migrants outside the Vice President’s Residence at the U.S. Naval Observatory. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis sent two planes with migrants from San Antonio, Texas, to Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts.
